Description
Information
Highly readable, often surprising and always enjoyable, 'A Little History of Australia' tells the whole story of this Great Southern Land, from its Aboriginal origins to the present day, including:

• Discovery by European navigators who claimed the land as their own – even though it was already inhabited

• The First Fleet, convict settlements, the gold rushes, and turn-of-the-century questions about whether Australia could be a perfect society

• The birth-pangs of a federated nation, and the experiences of Australians in the world's wars

• Continuing tension over links with Britain, massive post-war immigration, successes and problems of the twentieth century, and the celebration of a distinctly Australian way of life

It's all here, in one cute, compact and vividly written mini-history.
